[audio]Long Decay - Cousin Silas
This album will feature some lovely tunes from one of my own favourite musicians. He has been and still is one of my many influences. Listening to his music I learnt how to listen properly, how to devour every single message hidden beneath a track's sound. Thank you and welcome to the Withering Trees, Cousin Silas!

[audio]Cousin Silas - Dronescape 020 (waag_drs020) - Cousin Silas
Twenty. Yes, twenty! This is the twentieth instalment in Cousin Silas' Dronescape series and it sees him exploring the darker recesses of ambient music. Clocking in at 72 minutes, this is a deeply immersive journey into the unknown. I have spoken before of the association I have with Silas' work and the author H.P. Lovecraft, with the Cthulu Mythos, in particular, really sticking with me. This Dronescape reminds me of the first Lovecraft story that I read: "The Nameless City"...

George Carlin once said ... "Have you ever started a path? No one seems willing to do this. We don't mind using existing paths, but we rarely start new ones. Do it today. Start a path. Even if it doesn't lead anywhere." This saying resonates with me for a number of reasons, too many in fact for here & now. What I will say, however, is how much I respect Cousin Silas' Dronescape project and how, in creating his own path, he’s created something that a lot of people have gained pleasure from...

"So long as the gift is not withheld, the creative spirit will remain a stranger to the economies of scarcity. Salmon, forest birds, poetry, symphonies, or Kula shells, the gift is not used up in use. To have painted a painting does not empty the vessel out of which the paintings come. On the contrary, it is the talent which is not in use that is lost or atrophies, and to bestow one of our creations is the surest way to invoke the next."

It's basically a small valley, a stream running through it and an old mill that had just closed down not long after we moved there. Very peaceful place”.
